evidence as that brought out before
Police Magistrate Edmonds. The witness Informed the Judge and Jury
that he had been summoned to attend at the police court on the charge
of having committed unlawful acts

who was the sister of his wife. The
case had been dismissed and he (Wilson) had then had the two prisoners
in the dock arrested for having demanded from him the sum of $50,000
by alleged blackmail. When witness'
wife was sick over twelve months ago
he had sent to the east for the female prisoner to come to this city and
not only be a companion to his wife
and  her sister, but to assist In    the

recommends the modified use ot
"plain clothes" men who were taken
away from the precinct commanders
by the mayor and the "freer use of

was unhappy with her husband and
tbat she wished to work for herself.
PT>r practically a year after she arrived In Westminster, everything had

Valdez, May 17.���The local sawmill,
operated by the Copper_ River Lumber
company, is starting" earlier than
usual this summer to supply the unusual demand for building material.
With about 100,000 feet of logs now
on hand and contracts let for a million and a half more, the mill will bo
kept busy all summer.
Most of the loes are secured from
points along Prince William sound
and towed to Valdez, although some
have been sledded In from up Lowe-
river valley. One contract let to William Byers for 400,000 feet is to be
flled on Esther island.
This contract ls unique ln that tha
use of power for moving the timber to*
the beach is entirely dispensed with.
Byers has a crew of from sixty to
eighty Indians, and they supersede
the donkey engine for pulling logs out
of the woods. Each log Ib literally carried to the beach by a swarm of tho
natives.

not denied that America had trebly

armament of war vessels on the great
lakes, he can give the day before
Whitsuntide to consider these questions. The premier answered in the
negative.

TORONTO THE GOOD STEAL
Report  at   Synod   Recommends   Government   Comminsion   on   Shoplifting���Should Cover Goods. ,
Toronto, May 17.���"It U my conviction that a government commission
should be appointed ta Investigate tne
growing evil ot shoplifting. The law
should compel departmental stores to
cover all gooJs placed on sale."
This was tlie emphatic declaration
of H. E. Irwin, of Toronto, Con ven ir
of the Committee on Social and Moral
Reform, ln presenting his.unnual report to the Synod of Kingston and
Toronto In session thiB morning at
St. James Square church.
"I have observed tbat pollce court
convictions In shoplifting cases have
doubled repeatedly, and yet I do not
believe Hiat the convictions represent one-twentieth part of those who
are actually in the habit of stealing.
"There are one thousand women n
this city today, who Bteal, I believe.
"About tlie other side of tlie question���Our departmental stores set
aside thousands of dollars yearly t_
cover thefts. Why don't they expend this money ln buying glass show
cases to cover their wares and prevent this pilfering?" he asked.
"The reason is plain. Their sales
would lie afTected. They can afford
to pay detectives and leave their
goods unprotected. Women want to
examine the artk.es they buy, unit) many cases when an article 'a
temptingly displayed, a sale Is soon
effected whether the article is really-
needed or not." The department
stores had reduced salesmanship to a
science, he thought. "Tliey knew
how to make money."
"I don't believe that one word of
this wlll bo seen In a paper In Toronto," declared the speaker. "Why?
Because the papers will be afraid tn
say anything on account of the advertisements. Tliose one page ads.
are worth something."
In his report Mr. Irwin suggested
the resolution that a commission be
appointed to investigate the alarming
Increase in convictions for shoplifting.
und the tune has been claimed as
Dutch, German, Spanish ami Hungarian, but was probably _n old English darning tune.
The question of having a marching
song for use in the Hritish Army had
of late come prominently into notice,
but this was not a new idea, as was
shown by the history of the "Marseillaise." Before the Terror Marie
Antoinette useJ to sing to the Dauphin ln his cradle a popular song
known as "Malbrook sen" va-t-en
guerre," which has got mixed up ln
some obscure way with our great general, Marlborough, and was freely
translated Into English as: ,
Malbrook, the prince of commanders,
Has gone to the war In Flanders,
His fame Is like Alexander's,
But when will he come home?
And  the  adapter  supplied   an  an
swer, not In the original:
He won't come home till morning,
Till daylight doth appear.
And about  1830 the   delicate   and
rather melancholy French air of Mal-
I brook   was  turned   Into  a  convivial
| song, "We won't go home till morn
I ing," the second verse of which began "for he's a Jolly good fellow."
The control of tlie Rhine, said the
I lecturer, had always boen a bone oi
I contention  between France and Oer-'
��� many.   A quiet and obscure Swabian
j merchant named  Max Schneckenhur-
, ger, who never did anything else, was
I in 1840 minded to write some verses
on the Rhine, thc burden   of which
was:
I
Dear Fatherlan.l,  no danger thine.
Firm  stand  thy sons  to   watch   tlie
Rhine.
I    Tlie Franco-German war gave tbem,
i an enormous vogue; and they became;
I adapted   as   the   national    hymn   of;
United German, and a yearly pension I
of 1000 markB was conferred on Carl'
Wilhelm, the composer of the tune.

(The Observer, London.)
Sir Ernest Clarke, the chairman of
the    Folk    Song     society,   lecturing
March 11  before the London section I
of the Incorporated society of Musl^
cians, said the curious point In con-i
nection with songs that bad made history was that they were, more often
than not, written and composed   by I
men who had no other c'aim to im-
mortality.    It was almost In the na-
ture of things that such songs should I
be produced when men's minds were'
greatly agitated, and their blood stir-j
red by events tbat appealed to their
emotions, and especially to their pa
triotism.   Such a song was "When tlie
King Enjoys His Own Again." wiitten
by Martin Parker, the most celebrated
ballad maker of Stuart times, but no'
one knew who the composer was. In-
vented  to  support  the   declining   Interests of Charles I., the song kept up ,i
tbe spirits of the cavaliers during the,!
commonwealth  period, and   promoted
the restoration of Charles' son. At thel
revolution of 1688 It was   a favorite|
with   the   Stuart   adherents,  and
nerved to keep alive the Jacobite en
thusiam   ln    every   corner    of    Great
Britain down to the reign of George
III.
The oldest Welsh melody extant
was 'Morva Rhyddlan,' composed in
7.5; and after many hundre Is years
Evan James, an obscure schoolmaster, wrote some words which were
now known as the Welsh National
Anthem. At a mass meeting ln \Vale3
to celebrate the end of the South African war very few knew "God Save
the King," but "The Land of My I
Fathers" was rendered with immense
enthusiasm. I
In Scotland tlie earliest of the songs
Which bad made history were con-
nected with the risings of 1715 anl
17.... One sucb song, "Hey Tuttle
Tatie," supposed to imitate thej
rub-a-dub of a drum, acquired a tun.
which was afterwards set to Burn's
stirring  lyric,  "Scots  What  Hae."
A  contention was always going on|(
between the    three divisions of   the
United   Kingdom  as  the original   nationality of many of our national a'.rs
The words "Auld Lang Syne" were by
Burns,   but   the   music   was   adapted
from the opera of "Rosina," by  William Shield, the Englishman.     Scotland,  In   revenge,  allege 1   that    the I
tune of "The Wearing of the Green"
was adapted from an air by James 0+ !
wald, a Caledonian composer.    "Rule
Britannia"  was  written   by  a   Scot, I
James Thomson, and composed by an
Englishman,   Thomas   Arne.   "Hom.i,
Sweet Home," was set by a Londoner,
Sir Hy. Bishop, to words by an American, John Howard Payne. But if "The
Wearing of  the   Green"  might   owe
something of its tune to Scotland, its
words were the outpouring of an an-
onvmous street ballad writer during
the Irish rebellion of 1789.
Songs had many changes. Ralph
Tomllnson, the president of the An-
acretonlc club, which met at the
Crown and Anchor Tavern, In the
Strand, wrote an ode "To Anucreon
In Heav'n," which John Stafford
Smith set to music, some time before
1788. Nothing happened till September, 1814, when Francis Scott Key, a
young American lawyer, watched tho
bombardment of Baltimore .y a British man-of-war, and wrote the song
beginning, "O Bay. can yen see by tlie
dawn's early light,' now known as
"The Star-Spangled Banner." The
music to this was nothin. less than
Stafford Smith's old convlval glee.
"To Anacreon in Heav'n," so that the
most generally known and esteemed
American patriotic song was an Eng
lish composition. Again, "Yankee
Doodle" was written to ridicule tho
American Colonial Militia raised to
help tbe British against tbe French,

Jn eur issue of March 2, we called,
what has now turned out to be a bluff
on the part of his worship, and do-
n^anded that the mayor should ask for
a. commission and that right away,

RECIPROCITY IS
FEARED BY SENATORS
	
UNITED STATES REPRESENTATIVES INCLINED TO THINK
CANADA WILL BENEFIT TOO
GREATLY  BY AGREEMENT.
In article 235 of the first andj
unexpurgated edition of Cotsworth's report the word "graft"
appears; when the paragraph in question came up for discussion Alderman
Johnston strongly, and rightly so, objected to the use of the word. Alderman Dodd Immediately asked Alderman Johnston the meaning of the
word. On referring to Webster's
dictionary the definition is "to Join
(one thing) to another as if by grafting, ho as to bring about a closer
union."
Cotsworth, ln the first edition of hl_
pamphlet,   deals   most   exhaustively j
upon the oaths of office taken by tho'
mayor and  aldermen, indeed  In sec-
tlon   105   (first    edition)    "Aldermen'
... to far as they have broken their j
oaths of abnegation by taking Illegal;
rebates or other    pecuniary    udvanc. j
ages, either for personal gain or   to
benefit trading    concerns    in    whlcn
they were privately interested." J
Again section 226 in dealing with
the mavoralty "public oath that    he
,, .: ,  ,       .the taxpayers  money
would not allow any private interest; *     _______
to influence his   conduct   In   public}
matters."
We have to hand the financial re
ports of the different committees
brought down for payment.
lt is with a considerable amount of
pain that we have to draw attention
to the following items:  ���
Fire committee's report���
Lees' Limited    194.60
Galloway & Lewis  $56.00
Denny & Ross $82.lu
Health committee's report���
Lee's Limited  $744.50
Lenny & Ross   $ 22.03
We said we hai to draw attentionT
to the above with pain, and we do
so advisedly. Mayor Lee has always
Applauded the sentiments of Cotsworth, from time to time, lie has
thanked him for ills timely sugges-
tions and for hls good advice. Now
we want to ask Mayor Lee if h_
thought ho was acting up to the high
plane set by Cotsworth when such
iars.e orders of goods were purchased
from Lee's Limited.
Cotsworth (lirst edition) says
"other pecuniary advantages to bene-
iit trading concerns lu which tbey
arc privately Interested." What lv.ia
Cotsworth to say to these transactions ?
What have the taxpayers   to say ?
It is their money tlie council Is s\ ending.    W'e want to ask the council if
prices were asked for supplying gocd,
to thc isolation hospital, and whether
it  wa.--. owing to tho    cheapness    of
Lees'  Limited   tbat   firms  like  Fales,
Davis, Calloway  &.  Lewis,  Denny  &
Hoss received in some instances not I
.a cent.    The taxpayers want to knov; I
who authorized  the spending of  this
money in one channel, und the    taxpayers want    a    statement    brought
down  at  the next  council    meeting,
nnd a commission appointed if neces-;
sary io find out if the goods supplied,
���could   have   been  purchased   cheaper
from other firms in the city.
it is a disgrace that Mayor Lee

Washington, May IT. ��� Senator
Stone, of .Missouri, announced today
to the senate finance committee at
the hearing in reciprocity and free
j^st-biljs that he would soon press for
a' vote "on reciprocity. He said he did
not propose to let the hearings drag
along indefinitely. An unsuccessful
attempt was made by the committee
to fix a time to close the dual hearings. Senator Penrose, chairman of
the committee expressed the belief
that the reciprocity bill hearing
would end soon.
The controversy over the prices of
Canadian cattle arose between members of the senate finance committee
and a witness at today's hearing on
the reciprocity bill. C. E, Lasater
president of the Cattle Kaisers' asso-
| eiatlon, of Texas, declared that the
cattle raising industry would be destroyed because Canadian prices were
lower. Senator Stone declared this
was not tbe ease. Ho quoted statistics which Mr. Lasater questioned.
The secretary of agriculture and Pro
lessor Finery, of the tariff board, will
be called to explain the figures and
apparent contraditions.
Cowardly, Says Senator.
The reciprocity agreement with
Canada was characterized as "a
cowardly abandonment of a grave
duty," in a speech delivered in the
senate today by Senator C. I. Crawford, of Soutli Dakota. Mr. Crawford
spoke for hours in opposition to tho
agreement. He charged that not only
would lt fall to add to the general
welfare, but it would do irreparable
harm to agriculture. The president's
contention that it would reduce the
cost  of lhing, ho would not accept.
"The proposed law," Mr. Crawford
said, "Is a declaration that we intend
no longer to depend on the cultivation
of our own soil and the Industry ot
American farmers for our food supplies nnd that agriculture in tho
place at file head of our greal Industries, but is heralded to be treated
as   a pursuit   of   lesser   Importance
bedding liaving among the Amei lean people; because!
from this lime on we shall look be-1
yond these American farms into tne
foreign lands and we shall Invite tb.
whole world on equal terms to compete with the American farmer in
liis own market place.
Trusts  Will   Benefit.
Asserting that  the  principal .beneficiaries under the bill would lie  thc
trusts. Mr. Crawford mentioned manv
of tbem. among tbem the linseed oil,
,, , ,       ,        ,    tne brewing, the distilling, tlie    beef
fact that the orders were placed with and   Manufactured   food   companies,
Lee's  Limited   incorporated    towards   Charging that the one great purpose
the end of 1909 or beginning of
lD-Oft. the exclusion of others from
a fair division.
That Mayor Lee himself does   not
know   the meaning    of    fairness    in
dealing   with  tlie  public   funds,  one
has only  to  look  through  the  samo
accounts and find that the Colombian
Co., Ltd., received $683.02. for adver- j
tising and printin^.for the month. W.
fall to  fnid._.tfie7names of any other!
prta|jiftg  firms  in  the  city  receiving,
-any business from the council. As fort
the Daily News account of $21.50, well,
_he amount speaks tor itself, the edl- j
torlal   columns  are  not   to  be    pur-
of the bill is to put newsprint and
pulpwood and pulp on the free list.
Air. Crawford asked why this was so.
Then replying to his own question,
he said:
"Simply because the great newspapers and the great magazines of the
United States, as a special class .aggressively organized for the purpose,
demand it. and propose to get it as a
.pedal   privilege"

no doubt that in case of mobilization, the Rurals would be in a far iess
remote state of inefflcency than their
comrades ot the cities. On the other
hand this should, lh fairness to tho
men, have been clear from the start
and they should not have been al ,
lowed to enlist under the Impression
thai one thing was expected of them,
only to Iind themselves, in reality,
faced by an entirely different proposition.
Tho    authorities    ought    to    bring
themselves  more  In   touch   with  the
classes from whicli the rank and file
or the Militia are recruited and  then
these    mistakes    would    not    occur
Rural  corps  are  supposed   to  be   recruited   trom   the   agricultural   com
inunitlcs, and do little or no drill the
year   round,   but  during  the   period
when tlie farmers are slack, more or
less,  they  go into camp   for   twelve
days and are then dismissed til', the
foil.wing  year.    The City  units   are
recruited    rrom    amongst    the storekeepers,    assistants,    mechanics,    la
borers, etc., who go to make the pop-1
ulation or a city, men with spare time
in  the evenings, but  who could not,
tor the most pari, get away rrom their
various employments Tor a number ot
days together;   these drill  on one oi
more   evening   u   week,   generally   in
the  winter  time.    The   distinction  is
quite necessary, of course, and should
work   admirably   R   maintained;   but
when  the  authorities  suddenly   point
out to a regiment raised in a city ot |
tlie  .ize  or   Westminster,  that   they'
are a community or farmers, and must
be trained as Rurals, it shows a lamentable    lack    or   discrimination   on
somebody's part.    The men recruited
here are all city men and should un |
doubtedly  be trained as such.    I do

I should have thought North Vancouver a rather small town to support a fleld company of engineers (lf
that is the Cult to be raised), but if
the permanents take as long over Its

MANY  TROUT TRAPPED

North Yakima, May 17.���The Instinct of brook trout to follow a current down stream arter tbe spawning
season is resulting in the death ot
many or the fish here in irrigation
ditches, where they are killed with
clubs.
While the state game laws provide,
that all canal intakes must be screened the law is not enforced and the
flsh. instead of finding deeper water
by following tlie current, swim on un
til they are in ditches

dark brown hair wliich was the envy of my friends and
wliich attracted the attention and remarks of strangers,
but as 1 grew older it commenced to come out. When
my hair was quite thin and gray, I was induced by the
many good reports I had heard of Wyeth's Sage and
Sulphur to try a bottle; and you can imagine my satisfaction when I found my hair was fast coming back to its
natural condition. I continued to use Sage and Sulphur
until my hair was as heavy, dark and smooth as when I
was a girl of sixteen. It i.s now four years since I began using Sage and Sulphur and my hair is in splendid
condition.

The C. P. R. have stated publicly that all their engines will use oil for fuel. Their boats are already doing so. Within five years every engine on every railroad and every steamer throughout the
world will be running on oil fuel.   This is an acknowledged fact.
Last year's consumption of oil was 340,600,000 BARRELS.   In 1915 you will have to multiply this 100 times.
The big oil corporations, Standard, Imperial, American Petroleum, Reed Crude, United Petroleum,
Union Cil, etc., etc., have all made their fortunes out of oil selling at from 40c. to 52. per barrel.
The Alaska Oil Fields' (Limited) Oil is worth $2.00 to $3.00 per barrel.

Mr. Hill today outlined his entirely
novel and very practical plan to The
Times. He arrived here this morning
ln company with President George B
Harris, of the Burlington system. Mr!
Hill has worked for two years on tho
present problem. He has analyzed his
plan repeatedly in the hope of finding some flaw in it.
Tests His Own Plan.
"For months past," said Mr. Hill
"we have employed a searching probe
on all westbound colonist trains to
determine lf possible the rule that
will have universal application in enlisting directly the interest or prospective settlers or the better class
in the east and middle western states
who might be shown that they could
with advantage to themselves becom��
residents of Washington or or any of
the states of the Pacific northwest
reached by our road. The answer is
that the most dependable and effec-
tice means of reaching these peopl.
Is a letter or message of some k,in_
from those who have come from the
east themselves and who have prospered in the great Trans-Misslssipu
country.
"We have tried every agency In tho
process of locating this greatest of a 1
factors In inducing the settlement of
the country. Exhibition cars, illustrated lectures, publicity of various
kinds, the distribution of illustrated
literature and other forms of exploitation all have their merits and are al:
factors.
Endless Chain System.
"But I am now convinced that a
far greater anj more responsive efficiency can be obtained by my new
plan. It is, briefly, to organize the
successful farmers and orchardists,
the merchants in the country communities, the commercial organizations of
the smaller cities of the states, and
Spokane, May 17���Release from
the city Jail Juat in time to meet the
train on which his sweetheart was
due to arrive in Spokane was the fate
of Joe Borassa, a French-Canadian,
who ls now a homesteader on the upper St. Joe river.
Last week Borassa left his shanty
in the woods to come to Spokane for
the express purpose of meeting his intended, who was on her way from
Quebec to marry him. He arrived in
Spokane a whole day ahead of the
time she was expected, made arrangements for the marriage and still had
lots of time on his hands. He Btarted
out to kill it by a round of tbe saloons and soon contracted a bad case
of staggers. When he awoke from his
apree he found himself ln the city
Jail on a charge of drunkenness ami
also discovered that he had but an
hour ln which, to procure his freedom
and meet his bride-to-be. Joe got
busy with the jail wardens, told his
story and it waa discovered that bo
still had $8.80 to hls credit at tbe
desk. Six dollars was required to pay
the usual fine and the costs and witli
the balance be hurried to the trala
and met the bride.

lists are to be copied, one   copy forwarded to ub, another kept for constant reference by the commercial organization  and  a third   sent   to the
larger city organizations.
"This   plan   should   be   started   at
once.    Having obtained  lists  of   the
kind  I   have  indicated,  the   commercial bodies will send their own literature,  enclosed In wrappers which we
will  furnish.    We  will pa.,* tlle  postage  in  addition.      For example,  the
Cashmere  or  Wenatchee   or   Odessa
club    will    send    literature    applying
specifically   to   one   of    these    localities.      We will take our copy of the
list and send literature of our own relating    to    Washington,   Idaho,   Montana or Oregon, as the case may be.
The commercial bodies in the logge 1
off  land  districts  where dairy   farming and poultry raising are remunerative will send their own literature. In
the stock  raising sections  the same
practice will be followed.
To Try Follow Up Scheme.
"In a little while we will have an
endless chain. Responses to literature sent out along the line I have indicated will be followed up by postal
cards, signed by settlers already residing here. A sceond follow up will
be made by the commercial organization und so on.
"We will spend $200,000 this year
In exploitation and publicity and are
ready to devote a considerable part
of this sum to the plan I have outlined to you. There Is no doubt ln
my mind as to the feasibility and
practicability of the plan, and If anv
man can find a soft srot in it I would
like to know of it."
